Samsung may be developing a Galaxy A51 5G version for Verizon that supports the ultra-broadband mmWave 5G standard. RootMyGalaxy found a running score report on Geekbench with the SM-A516V, a built-in octa-core processor with a motherboard codenamed “lito” and an expected SnapDragon 765G SoC with 6GB of memory.
The Verizon version of the Galaxy A71 5G is expected to be available later this summer. Reported that the sM-A716V device will be branded a71s 5G UW, “UW” for the faster ultra-broadband mm mm network, which is the same as the operator’s name of its 5G mobile phone. As a result, the A51 variant may be called the A51s 5G UW.
The regular A51 5G, which debuted in April, features a 5G-enabled Exynos chipset, while Verizon’s Custom Edition is likely to opt for the Snap765G, possibly because it supports both the mmWave and sub6 networks, while the 765 and 765G both include The SnapDragon X52 5G modems. Previously, both the A51 and A71 5G models used the SnapDragon765 SoC, and the difference between them was primarily the camera.
Currently, there is not much information on the release date of these devices. However, since the A51 smartphones rumoured to be on the same SM-A516V model have been discovered and certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance and the NFC Forum, it should not be long before they are released.
